Boundaries, an international quarterly magazine that focuses on providing information on sustainable and “socially engaged” architecture, has released several issues over the years. In particular, their release of “A Focus on Humanitarian Architecture” in 2014 is full of insightful information into the field. This issue focuses on the following topic:
“In 2014, for the first time since the end of World War II, the number of refugees exceeds fifty million people in total. In such challenging conditions, in which the needs exceed the capacity of NGO and international organizations to provide help and support, what can architecture do? Maybe a lot, it depends on your vision of what architecture as a profession can deliver.”
With contributions from: BC Architects, Building Trust international Design Team, Spacematters architecture and urbanism, Coporaque Workshop, and many more this issue provides potent case studies and articles. It also includes an interview with Line Ramstad, founder of Gyaw Gyaw active. Take a closer look at this issue or even buy a copy on Boundaries Bookstore here.
